I just saw on the news that there was a school bus crash where a car tried to make a left turn in front of a school bus got hit. The driver and a middle school child where life-flighted to a hospital, and 13 high school bus passengers where brought to the hospital by bus, and the school bus driver was also brought to the hospital.
This seems to happen a lot.
I spoke to a parent the other day who had a child on a school bus last week that had an accident and the parents were not informed. They found out through the grape vine. That parent began homeschooling this past Monday. That was the last straw in a long list of complaints.
Last May 50 or more people were injured on a multiple school bus crash to Six Flags.
I know putting your child on the school bus is easier for parents than driving, but it has always made me nervous. I am glad that we only have to be out and about the same time as the hectic morning commute (another factor) one day a week. The rest of the days we stay home until rush hour is over.
